We’re going for the World Record!

St. Catherine’s is on to be part of the largest sailing event in the world in a bid to claim the world record. 44 boats have entered, which means we have exceeded the minimum required, so we have appointed an official adjudicator to oversee our race.

You can still register online, the more the better so do it now. Race starts at 11, breifing at 10.

Don’t forget if you have registered already then please make a donation to the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation, which transforms the lives of young people through sailing.

Catherine Moisan and the house committee will be putting on a ploughman’s lunch and profiteroles, all the proceeds of which will be donated to the foundation.

Lunch will be served after sailing from about 1pm, so if you can’t sail then please do join us for lunch and contribute to this great cause.
